Last of the Breed @ Radio City Music Hall

I had a a great time at this concert last night. Ray Price started the evening with his own band and they were amazing. Ray's vocals haven't lost anything at all. The highlight of his set was "Heartache by the Numbers". Merle Haggard was up next and although he didn't play all of the hit I wanted to hear he was still great. I guess the problem is that he just has so many amazing songs it is hard to pick which ones to play. He closed his set by performing my favorite tune of his "Sing Me Back Home". He was then joined by Willie Nelson for "Okie From Muskogee". Willie's appearance received the biggest cheers of the night. After a brief set by both Willie and Merle, Ray came back and they all performed a few songs together including this Hank Williams songs. Sorry about the bad video quality but I was sitting the cheap seat.
